Barak Smoke-bama

It doesn’t matter if you call them Squares, Coffin Nails, Cancer Sticks, Smokes, Stogs, or Cigarettes, they aren’t easy to kick.  Just ask the President.  As I can attest, quitting smoking is a challenge.  Cigarettes are easily accessible, pretty cheap, addictive as hell, and go great with some behaviors.  No matter how long you’ve been off of them, the temptation is always there.

Now imagine trying to quit and having the most stressful job in the world.  According to recent reports, Obama has been able to pull of both for the last nine months.  News site reports

President Barack Obama appears to be making progress in his struggle to kick a smoking habit and is chewing nicotine gum as a replacement, the White House said on Thursday.

To which I say, Thumbs Up BrObama!  Regardless of how you feel about the politics, it’s a commendable effort.  I’m just under a month off of cigarettes, and I know at any point, I could slip up.  Obama has done it for 9 months, which I applaud.
